Abstract

© 2016 Taylor & Francis. Abstract: This paper proposes an alternative strategy for delivering urban infill development in suburban contexts. The paper contends that the combination of upgraded streetscapes and residential densification could result in positive synergies. These include the supply of open space amenity as an incentive for resident groups to support infill development that achieves greater than usual residential densities. The capacity of this approach is tested in a research by design exercise in an Australian greyfield suburb that has high infill development targets and expansive yet typically poorly utilized street reserves.
